I am the Evening News small business of the year 2012 and was part of the landscape gardener team that won Landscape gardener of the Year 2015. Read about this on the Scotsman web site for their article or you can download the Evening News article.

We are fully qualified, fully insured, reliable and hard working. We have over 10 years of experience. We would be delighted to discuss our landscaping, design & consultancy services in Edinburgh and the Lothians.

I have been a gardener here in Edinburgh for almost 9 years and have studied garden design at the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh.

landscape gardeners case study

Our landscape gardener services were employed to renovate this North Edinburgh neglected garden. Our clients wanted a low maintenance garden as they lead a very busy professional and family life. They wanted a new garden patio area next to their house for entertainment and relaxing - when the Scottish weather permits, and a new driveway. There were two large areas of the garden that they wanted renovating as cost-effectively as possible.

We designed this garden makeover project with this in mind and built garden patios, raised beds, gravel/slate beds and a new driveway.

Below you will find some before and after photos of this project.

Garden patio & paving - if you look at the house and wall surrounding the property you will see brown, yellow, pink colours. We chose a natural paving product called "buff" that would compliment these colours and would brighten up this entertainment area. A brick edging around this patio was designed as a way to tie the patio to the walls. Rope lights and spike lights were installed to enhance the use of this patio paving project.

Driveway - The main access to the property is from the driveway, therefore, our solution had to look great. There was not a budget for a mono-block driveway so we designed a driveway to use supported gravel mechanism. This support mechanism is designed to hold several tons of vehicles and with careful choice of gravel can look great.

Raised beds - we chose to install wooden sleepers to act as a visually strong wall to enclose this large 30m patio. A high-quality weed sheet and blue slate finished this patio.

Gravel patio - using a new weed sheet and refreshing the pearl gravel was a great, cost-effective way to renovate this part of the garden.

garden ponds & water feature services

garden pond Edinburgh example

We have built many garden ponds over the years. From bespoke raised ponds built with stone through to preformed ponds dug in the ground and every pond if built bespoke to you. There is no better way to attract wildlife into your garden - a garden pond is a haven for aquatic animals and aquatic plants. It doesn't need to be a massive deep pond - even converting a wooden barrel or old plastic tub into a pond will attract aquatic life.

There are many factors in designing and building a garden pond - these are just some of the options we can discuss with you:

Please see below for frequently asked questions regarding our landscape gardeners Edinburgh services.

There are figures from professional landscaping bodies that recommend between 4 and 7 percent of a properties value for a garden makeover project. We can talk about budgets and set a reasonable one when we come and see you for your free estimate. We have worked with clients for their landscape gardener project from £600 through to £30k for a complete garden renovation. Whatever your budget or experience of gardening we can design and build your landscape gardening project.

We love working with clients that are keen gardeners with ideas for their garden makeover but also enjoy working with people who are not experienced gardeners and unsure where to start. During your free estimate visit we can walk round your garden ideas and offer advice for your garden makeover. We can then produce a garden design showing all the elements of you landscape gardener project.

We are professionals in all hard landscaping services. From garden patios and paving, decking, raised beds, retaining walls, fences, driveways and ponds - we have built them all. We also offer a planting design service.

We are professional plants-men and have good contacts with trade nurseries to source specific specimens. Want a low maintenance garden or a garden with year round interest – not a problem. We will produce a planting design bespoke to you garden makeover project and will give you a list of each plant and how to maintain it throughout the year.

Definitely. We have designed and built bespoke garden ponds for large gardens and have also installed pond kits for the smaller garden. Clearly a bespoke designed and built pond is significantly more expensive. Ponds are a great way of introducing wildlife to your garden.

What's the difference between a gardener and a landscaper?

Generally speaking a gardener will maintain a garden and a landscaper will build the garden. There is obviously some overlap there between these two skills but a gardener is equipped for gardening whereas a landscaper is equipped for building patios, fences, raised beds and the such. Its fair to say a landscaper may maintain a garden and a gardener may undertake some landscape build work.

How much does a landscape gardener charge per hour?

Our flat rate is £30 per hour. Most of our landscaping projects have a project price rather than an hourly rate of pay.
